Musings on Yaoi and Those Who Love It

I'm coocoo for yaoi puffs!

When people say, “You don’t live and breathe ‘x,’ so you can’t possibly understand it and thus can’t possibly criticize it,” I imagine that this argument somewhat applies to how I feel about yaoi. I know what it is, but I’ve never actually sat down and read a yaoi manga nor seen a yaoi anime (aside from Genshiken’s hilarious parody). So how can I really criticize yaoi, you know?

Jūden-chan Raus!

Her name is literally Plug

After the utter failure of ~Phantom~~Tilde~for~the~Phantom~~ to excite the interests of the Moe Sucks staff, we decided to move on to the suspiciously semitic-sounding Fight Ippatsu! Jūden-chan!!

Oh, but I guess the gimmick of Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~ is a dick. Real big shocker that he has unlimited potential, but ooh, he can’t remember his past except in washed out flashbacks. I’m beginning to think that Bee Train is brilliant actually. Think about it: DARK EMO PAST draws in the closet shounen lovers who are too proud to just watch Bleach. On the other hand, dangle a slow, brooding romance full of painful embraces to get the fangirls. Kudos.

No~ we’re not watching~ anymore episodes~ This show~ was so generic~ ~~~I didn’t feel like taking screenshots~~~
